Mick Foley Says He Would've Liked To Be RAW GM Longer But His Hip And Knee Problems Did Not Allow Him To

Mick Foley would've liked to stayed with the company longer.

WWE Hall Of Famer Mick Foley recently returned to WWE to promote his '20 Years Of Hell' special on the WWE Network and he did so in a big way as he announced that he was set to be the Special Guest Referee for the WWE Universal Championship Hell In A Cell match between the champion Roman Reigns and Braun Strowman. That bout occurred at last month's 'Hell In A Cell' PPV and the ending of the match saw Brock Lesnar return to WWE to set up the Triple-Threat between himself, Roman and Braun at 'Crown Jewel'.

WWE Files To Trademark "B-FAB"

Prior to Mick Foley's appearance last month he had last been on WWE TV in 2017 when he was the GM of RAW. Foley stated that he wanted to have more time as the GM of the red-brand but due to needing and eventually having his knee and hip replaced, it was no longer in the cards for him.

"I enjoyed my time working on RAW with Stephanie McMahon. I needed a hip replaced, and a knee replaced, so I couldn’t do it as long as I would have liked to, but I enjoyed being back there,” Mick Foley recalled during an interview with 'The Cornwall Seeker'.

Foley was in Cornwall to do a live show and while speaking with the news outlet he recalled another moment from his career and that was the Montreal Screwjob. Foley shared that he had walked out for a day and did not go to the next town after that Survivor Series PPV because of all the tension in the locker room.

“I had walked out for a day, and I didn’t go to Ottawa after Survivor Series. It was a little bit contentious in the locker room. I guess Mr. McMahon did what he thought he had to do to keep the company alive and we moved on,” Mick Foley pointed out.


Mick Foley's '20 Years Of Hell' special in Pittsburgh is available to watch on the WWE Network and to view a snippet from that show, head over to WWE's YouTube channel.
